Why rent a Dual-Sport Motorcycle in Moab?

All our bikes are Rocky-Mountain Ready!

Renting a motorcycle to ride in Moab, Utah opens up a vast world of adventure alex-on-drz-in-moab-for-rental-site-banner.pngopportunities and options. Unless you are interested in just dirt biking or just pavement riding, renting a “dual-sport” motorcycle is an excellent option for maximizing your riding vacation options and experiences.

A dual-sport motorcycle is simply a motorcycle that is designed and optimized for both on and off-pavement riding. These bikes come in all shapes and sizes. Some excel in the dirt and are tolerable on the road. Others are excellent on-road but require greater skill when playing in the dirt. Either way, a dual-sport motorcycle allows you the greatest flexibility to explore areas where both the on and off-road riding options are excellent.

Renting a dual-sport motorcycle in the Moab area enables the rider to select from exciting twisty pavement through stunning destinations such as Canyonlands and Arches National Park to thrilling dirt roads and double track trails that wind and twist through the endless desert terrain that Moab is famous for.


One of our favorite dual-sport motorcycles is the Suzuki DR-Z400S. The DRZ is a classic, time-proven, reliable machine that is a thrill to ride on any surface. DRZs come out of the factory ready to explore a huge variety of terrain from the finest paved desert canyons to the gnarly, rutted double-track sand roads that dot the vast desert terrain

encompassing Canyonlands National Park. However, with some thoughtful aftermarket accessories, a DRZ can be transformed into a robust, dependable adventure bike. The addition of a larger gas tank can double the range to well over 200 miles between fill-ups. Aluminum skid plates, radiator guards, and engine shields help to protect vital components when mishaps occur far from help. Aftermarket seats from Seat Concepts afford the rider a much more comfortable platform and allow for longer, more enjoyable days in the saddle. Riser handlebars and high-end grips give the rider greater riding position options and knobby DOT tires (we love the Dunlop 606) give you extra offroad confidence while maintaining good on-road performance.
